The creators of “The Flash” renewed the series for 22 episodes, but the sixth season won’t be airing all 22 episodes. Things are heating up with just three episodes remaining in the sixth season, and nobody knows how the story will conclude.
However, Grant Gustin has teased fans with what they can expect from the unexpected finale. In an interview, he revealed how it all would shake out, and season 6 will end on a cliffhanger.
In the episode “So Long and Goodnight,” we saw the sudden departure of an important character. It left views perplexed about what will happen next.
Grant Discussed How “So Long and Goodnight” Changes The Dynamics Of Team Flash
Before the release of “So Long and Goodnight,” Gustin, in an interview with TV Line, disclosed some important information about what comes next. He said that the 16th episode “So Long and Goodnight” changes the dynamic of the West-Allen family moving forward. Since the episode has already premiered, viewers know what he meant.
The Flash’s arch-rival, Rag Doll, resurfaced in “So Long and Goodnight.” However, the super-bendy metahuman was not after the speedster this time. Alternatively, Rag Doll tries to kill both Joe and Cecile, and he nearly succeeded in that.
Grant in the interview also revealed “The Flash” season 6 will only have 19 episodes since the production of the show has halted due to coronavirus pandemic. Although “The Flash” season 6 is cut short, fans can still hope for a satisfying conclusion, according to Grant.
He further added: initially, the creators planned a big Thawne cliffhanger for the end of this season, but that’s not going to happen now. Season 6 will conclude with episode 619, “Success Is Assured,” so the ending will have a different cliffhanger than initially planned. He assured the fans the cliffhanger at the end of this season is a pretty good finale material.
The Flash’s showrunner, Eric Wallace, earlier in an interview, also teased the fans. He said, “season 6 will end with tragic consequences to learning the truth about Mirror Iris”.
